I eat all of those regularly, except for the walnuts.

I think that list is a fairly typical part of the weekly grocery shopping for people who have an inkling about what a healthy diet consists of.

A lot of the list are ingredients that go into recipes.
As I was saying, I'm pleased with this list because usually the "good" lists are of things I never even heard of or can't get. (Like WTH is acai????)

Blueberries--just buy bags of frozen blueberries and make blueberry pancakes or use the blueberries to make smoothies. Even blueberries in a dish with milk over them.

Nuts--They are expensive but I get slivered almonds and put them onto bread with some raisins for a sandwich snack.

Avocado on toast is almost a cliche these days.

Eggs--hard boil and slice up for salads, poach and put on toast, make deviled eggs, some people like soft boiled eggs.

Broccoli--lots of people don't like it but you can throw it into a casserole. Cabbage is related=coleslaw.

Onions--make a hamburger and put a couple slices of onion on top. Make beef stew with onions. You can put onions in a lot of foods.

These are mostly yummy foods too. I'm so glad it didn't say things like (yuck) cucumbers, liver, eggplant, chia seeds, anchovies, tofu, lentils.

Chia seeds are awesome soaked in coconut or almond milk with some dried cherries. Makes a yummy breakfast pudding. Excellent source of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.

Anchovies, when broken into bite size bits are an awesome addition to a cheese pizza. A source of Omega 3, great for skin, heart, weight loss, and healthy bones and teeth.

Tofu is the shizzle of plant based proteins as it takes on the flavor of anything it is cooked with. Is also an excellent choice of phytoestrogen for us older ladies. Reduces cholesterol levels and maintains cardiovascular health.

Eggplant makes an awesome lasagna noodle. Just slice it, bread it, fry or bake it and use it instead of pasta for layers. Increases mineral density in bones and is good for overall bone health. A good source of vitamin K. Contains fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6.

I hate liver too, but its a great source of iron among other things.

Lentils are good. Are amazingly healthy too. Heart health, digestive health, prevents atherosclerosis and cancer.

Yeah, but life is too short to eat things you don't like, and many other options are available with the same health benefits.

Me too, except no coffee or boiled eggs. I'm nuts for nuts!

Love raspberries but go for the Costco frozen blueberries because they're so much cheaper.

These people sometimes substitute 2-3 of these items for an entire meal!

1. handful of almonds daily
2. handful of walnuts daily
3. 2 avocados per week
4. blueberries throughout week
5. red raspberries throughout week
6. boiled eggs
7. broccoli
8. spinach leaves
9. garlic and onions
10. tomatoes
11. citrus fruits
12. salmon
13. coffee
14. whole grains
I eat most of those multiple times per week. I would also add to the list
  1. kale
  2. collard greens
  3. acai berry
  4. maca powder
  5. spirulina
  6. tumeric
  7. ginger
  8. coconut oil / milk / water
  9. hemp seeds
  10. chia seeds
  11. ceylon cinnamon
  12. goji berries
  13. bone broth
